How To Travel Around Cape Verde

AfricaCape VerdeHow To Travel Around Cape Verde

Timetables in Cape Verde are not to be taken seriously; don’t be shocked if the boat leaves ahead of time or if the flight is abruptly rescheduled for tomorrow. This is something to think about if you want to go island hopping. Flights may be delayed or canceled due to weather and other factors. Carry your toothbrush with you and prepare ahead of time, particularly if you need to meet an overseas connection.

By plane

The bulk of the islands are served by TACV Cabo Verde [www]  airlines on a regular basis.

Domestic tickets are cheaper if bought in Cape Verde if you can afford to wait until you arrive.

If your overseas flights are booked via TACV, you may buy a Cabo Verde Air Pass for travels within the next 21 days. Prices begin at €110 for two vouchers and rise to €60 for each additional coupon.

By boat

Between the islands, there are ferry services. Flying may be considerably shorter but also significantly more costly depending on the distance between the islands you are traveling from and to.

By taxi

In the main cities, nice, modern taxis are available that are not metered. Aluguers, which are typically open back pickup trucks with bench seats or 15 passenger Toyota vans, travel between more remote locations, especially on Santo Anto.
